Our Class Trip to Styal Mill

Date: 5th Feb 2016 @ 5:46pm

Today we have a great time at Styal Mill!  We started our day by going to a weaving workshop.  We learnt how cotton was made before cotton mills were built.   We also learnt how to weave using our own weaving boards.  Check out our photos.  After our weaving workshop, we toured the mill and listenened to the noisy machinery.   Finally, we learnt all about a little apprentice called Thomas who ran away from Quarry Bank Mill to see his Mother.  We found out all about a day in a life of a young mill worker.  What a hard life!

We had a fantastic day!
